and by adding thereto three sections, to be knoivn as sections 186, 131 
and 138. 

Section 1. Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois, 
represented in the General Assembly: An Act entitled: "An Act in 
regard to the administration of estates", approved April 1, 1872, in 
force July 1, 1872, as amended, is amended, by amending sections 11, 
32, 59, 90, 112 and 130 thereof, and by adding thereto three sections, to 
be known as sections 136, 137 and 138, the amended and added sections 
to read as follows : 

§ 11. During any contest in relation to the probate of any will, 
testament, or codicil, before the same is recorded, or until a will which 
may have once existed, but is destroyed or concealed, is established, and 
the substance thereof committed to record, with proof thereupon taken, 
or during any contest in regard to the right of executorship, or to 
administer the estate of any person dying either testate or intestate, or 
whenever any other contingency happens which is productive of great 
delay before letters testamentary or of administration can be issued upon 
the estate of such testator or intestate, to the person or persons having 
legal preference to the same, the County Court may appoint an} r person 
or persons as administrators, to collect and preserve the estate of any 
such decedent, until probate of his will, or until other administration

of his estate is granted, taking bond and security for the collection, 
preservation and administration of the estate, making an inventory 
thereof, and safe-keeping and delivering up the same when thereunto 
required by the court, to the proper executor or administrator, whenever 
they shall be admitted and qualified as such. Such administrator to 
collect shall have such powers and authority as is vested by law in an 
executor or administrator, provided the same be exercised under and 
subject to the direction and order of the court, first obtained. 

§ 32. When any court grants letters testamentary or of adminis- 
tration, of the estate of any person deceased, without taking good security 
as aforesaid, or when any security heretofore or hereafter taken becomes 
in the judgment of the court insufficient, the court may, on the appli- 
cation of any person entitled to distribution, or otherwise interested in 
such estate, or on its own motion require such executor or administrator 
to give other and sufficient security; and in default thereof the letters 
testamentary or of administration, shall be revoked, and administration 
de bonis non granted; but all acts done according to law by the executor 
or administrator so removed prior to such revocation, shall be valid. 

§ 59. Every appraiser appointed under this Act shall be entitled 
to the sum of $2.00 per day for each day's necessary attendance in 
making all such appraisements, or such additional fees, compensation 
and charges as the court may deem reasonable and just, to be allowed 
by the County Court, and paid upon its order by the executor or ad- 
ministrator. 

If the administrator or executor of an estate discovers, at any time 
after an inventory and appraisement of the property is made, that the 
personal property and assets of the estate do not exceed the amount of 
the widow's allowance, after deducting the funeral expenses and other 
necessary expenses incurred, such administrator or executor shall report 
the facts to the court, and if the court finds the report to be true it shall 
order said property and assets to be delivered to the widow by the 
administrator or executor, and discharge the executor or administrator 
from further duty; but such executor or administrator shall first pay 
out of the property and assets the costs and expenses of administration 
and funeral expenses. After the court orders the delivery of such 
property and assets to the widow, the clerk of said court shall make and 
deliver to her a certified copy of the order, under seal, which shall vest 
her with complete title to said property and assets, and enable her to sue 
for and recover the same in her own name and for her own use. Such 
widow shall not be liable for any of the decedent's debts or liabilities, 
excepting the funeral expenses of the deceased. If, upon affidavit being 
fiied with the clerk of said court, that such administrator or executor 
fails or refuses to report in any case provided for in this section, the 
court may order a citation and attachment to issue as in other cases of 
a failure of administrators to report. And on a discovery of new 
assets, administration may be granted as in other cases, and charged to 
the account of the estate. 

§ 90. Upon the committal of waste by the surviving partner or 
partners, or when, in the judgment of the court, it is to the best interest 



ADMINISTRATION OF ESTATES. 



of the estate of said decedent, the court may, upon proper application, 
under oath, setting forth specifically the facts and circumstances relied 
on, protect the estate of the deceased partner, by citing forthwith the 
surviving partner or partners to give security for the faithful settlement 
of the affairs of the co-partnership, and for his accounting for and 
paying over to the executor or administrator of the deceased whatever 
shall be found to be due, after paying partnership debts and costs of 
settlement, within such time as shall be fixed by the court. The giving 
of such security may be enforced by attachment, or, upon refusal to 
give such security, the court may appoint a receiver of the partnership 
property and effects with like powers and duties of receivers in courts 
of chancery; the costs and expenses of proceedings under this section 
to be paid by the executor or administrator, out of the estate of the 
deceased, or by the surviving partner, or partly by each, as the court 
may order. 

§ 112. All executors and administrators shall exhibit accounts 
of their administration for settlement, to the County Court from which 
the- letters testamentary or of administration were obtained, at the first 
term thereof, after the expiration of one year after the date of their 
letters, and in like manner every twelve months thereafter, or sooner, if 
required by the court, until the duties of their administration are fully 
completed : Provided, that no final settlement shall be made and ap- 
proved by the court, unless the heirs at law of the decedent and the 
legatees under the will, and the creditors, if any, of the decedent, whose 
bequests or allowed claims have not been satisfied, have been notified 
thereof, in such manner as the court may direct. 

§ 130. Whenever real estate is required to be sold, for the pay- 
ment of debts and costs and expenses of administration, or for the 
purpose of satisfying a legacy which is a charge upon such real estate, 
the court may make all necessary orders to coerce the executor or ad- 
ministrator to make immediate application for an order to sell such 
real estate. 

§ 136. Depositions of witnesses in all proceedings under this Act 
shall be taken in the same manner, as near as may be, as is now or may 
hereafter be provided by law for the taking of the depositions of such 
witnesses in suits at law or in chancery. 

§ 137. Where it appears that a legacy provided by the will of a 
decedent is a charge express or implied upon the real estate of decedent, 
and there is not sufficient personal estate of said decedent out of which 
such legacy can properly be satisfied, or such legacy is not otherwise 
paid, satisfied or lapsed, then the County or Probate Court of the county 
where letters testamentary or of administration with the will annexed 
were issued, may upon the filing of a petition therefor by the executor or 
administrator, order the sale of real estate upon which such legacy is a 
charge, or so much of said real estate as may be necessary to satisfy 
such legacy, together with the costs and expenses of such proceeding. 
The mode of commencing such proceedings shall be by the filing of a 
petition by the executor or administrator with the will annexed, in the 
Countv or Probate Court of the countv where letters testamentarv or of 



ADMINISTRATION OF ESTATES. 



administration with the will annexed were issued. The widow, surviving 
husband, heirs and devisees of the testator or testatrix, and the guardians 
of any such as are minors, and the conservator of such as have con- 
servators, and all persons holding liens against the real estate described 
in the petition, or any part thereof, or having or claiming any interest 
therein in possession or otherwise, shall be made parties. If there are 
persons interested in the premises whose names are not known, then they 
shall be made parties by the name of unknown owners. The practice 
and procedure in such cases shall be the same, as near as may be, as the 
practice and procedure in proceedings for the sale of real estate by 
executors and administrators to pay the debts of decedents. The pro- 
ceeds of the sale of the real estate, after the payment of legacies which 
are a charge and lien thereon, and the costs and expenses of such pro- 
ceedings, shall be paid over to the devisees, heirs at law, or other persons 
thereunto entitled as their interest therein may appear. 

§ 138. If the executor or administrator shall fail to present a 
full, complete and true account, as required by law, the County or 
Probate Court shall have full power to state such an account, which 
account so stated by the court when entered of record shall be binding 
and conclusive against such executor or administrator and the surety 
or sureties on his bond or bonds, 'subject, however, to the right of 
appeal as in other cases.

estate of the deceased person, if such other person was not in default

estate should be executed to the person claiming under such contract

and equitable to all parties concerned, which deed shall be good and 
sufficient in law to all intents and purposes.

file such petition, the court upon proper application and showing may 
enter an order directing such administrator or executor to file the same.

plaint may be filed at the expiration of ten (10) days after such notifi- 
cation with the Director. The Director shall attempt to secure an

§ 19. Whenever the Department of Agriculture shall find as a fact 
that any plant or plant product is infested or infected by any insect pest

state, territory, district, province or country, or in any portion thereof, 
or in any locality therein, or that any plant or plant product, coming 
therefrom into this State is liable to convey infection to plants or plant 
products in this State, the Department of Agriculture shall report such 
fact to the Governor. The Governor may thereupon, by proclamation, 
schedule such state, territory, district, province, or country, or any 
portion thereof, or any locality therein, and prohibit the bringing there- 
from into this State of any plant or plant product of the kind infested 
or infected, or liable to be infested and infected, or is liable to convey 
infection to plants or plant products in this State, except under such 
regulations as may be prescribed by the Department of Agriculture and

of such regulations, shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor and upon 
conviction thereof shall be fined not less than five hundred dollars nor

or dogs trespassing on the premises where sheep are kept and not 
accompanied by their owner or keeper may be killed while so trespassing, 
and it shall be lawful for any person to kill all unlicensed dogs and all 
dogs without the metallic tags required by the provisions of this Act.

each owner of sheep his pro rata share of the money available. 

§ 4. The payment to any owner of sheep of money out of the 
county dog license fund for damages resulting from loss or injury to 
his or her sheep, shall not be a bar to an action by such owner against the 
owner or keeper of the dog or clogs committing such injury or causing 
such loss for the recovery of damages therefor. The court or jury 
before whom such action is tried shall ascertain from evidence what 
portion, if any, of the damages sought to be recovered in such action has 
been paid to the plaintiff in such action by the county treasurer; and in 
case the plaintiff in such action recovers damages, the court shall enter 
judgment against the defendant, in the name of the plaintiff, for the 
use of the county, for the amount which the plaintiff has received on 
account of such damages from the county treasurer, if such recovery 
shall equal or exceed the amount so received by such plaintiff from 
the county treasurer; and the residue of such recovery, if any there be, 
shall be entered in the name of the plaintiff in such action to his own 
use; if the amount of the recovery in such action shall not equal the 
amount previously paid the plaintiff on account of such damages by 
the county treasurer, then the judgment shall be entered as aforesaid, 
for the use of the county, for the full amount of such recovery. Writs 
of execution issued upon such judgment shall show on their face what 
portion of the judgment is to be paid to the county, and what portion 
is to be paid to the plaintiff in such action, and the judgment when 
collected shall be paid over to the parties entitled thereto in their 
proper proportions. 

§ 5. The county treasurer shall allow not to exceed fifty cents to 
each witness, which shall be paid out of the fund created by this Act, 
prior to its disposition by the third section of this Act.

Whereas : In September, A. D. 1915, Joseph E. Thompson, re- 
siding on a farm owned by him near Earlville in the county of LaSalle 
and State of Illinois, purchased in the state of Wyoming six hundred 
eighteen head of sheep and lambs and placed said sheep and lambs in 
railroad cars for transportation to Earlville, in the county of LaSalle 
and State of Illinois ; and, 

Whereas: While said sheep and lambs were in transit from Wyo- 
ming and before their arrival at Earlville, Illinois, on account of the 
alleged prevalence of the foot and mouth disease at a point in said

Joseph E. Thompson, the whole of said LaSalle County was placed in 
quarantine against the entry of live stock therein by the State Board of 
Live Stock Commissioners ; and, 

Whereas : The said sheep and lambs were purchased from off the 
ranges of the west and would not eat hay, any kind of grain, or other

purchased to eat the roughage during the fall and before its destruction 
in the winter season on the farm of the said Joseph E. Thompson ; and, 

Whereas : On account of said quarantine the said Joseph E.

which said fair grounds contained an acreage of about forty acres but 
without grass, weeds or roughage available for said sheep and lamps; 
and, 

Whereas : The quarantine against the entry into LaSalle County 
of live stock was not raised by the State Board of Live Stock Commis- 
sioners until on or about the 27th day of October, A. D. 1915, several 
weeks after said sheep and lambs had been taken to the fair grounds at 
Sandwich; and, 

Whereas : By reason of the fact that said sheep and lambs so 
confined to the fair grounds, as aforesaid, without roughage such as they 
were accustomed to and such as they would have received on the farm 
of the said Joseph E. Thompson, were un-dermined in health and did 
not gain flesh, some of them dying by reason thereof; and, 

Whereas : When said quarantine was raised the roughage on the 
farm of the said Joseph E. Thompson had become withered and frozen 
and was rendered in large part unfit for the sheep and lambs purchased 
as aforesaid, and the said Joseph E. Thompson was compelled to dispose 
of said sheep at a great loss ; and, 

Whereas : The said Joseph E. Thompson has paid the sum • of 
one hundred fifty four dollars for the care of said sheep and lambs at the

provisions of this Act; the parties to such submission may include by 
reference in said written submission the published rules of any organi-

(Senate Bill, J\ t o. 477. Approved June 23, 1919.)

represented in the General Assembly: That on a ratification of this 
Act by a vote of the people in accordance with the Constitution of this 
State, it shall be lawful to form banks and banking associations, as here- 
inafter provided, for the purpose of discount and deposit, buying and 
selling exchange and doing a general banking business, excepting the 
issuing of bills to circulate as money; and such banks or banking asso- 
ciations shall have the power to loan money on personal and real estate 
security, and to accept and execute trusts. 

§ 2. When any association of persons, not less than three, desire 
to avail themselves of the provisions of this Act, they shall apply to the 
Auditor for permission to organize stating their place of business, the 
amount of capital and name under which they desire to organize, and 
the time for which such association shall continue, which statement shall 
be under their hands and seals, and acknowledged before some officer 
authorized by law to acknowledge deeds and the Auditor shall issue to 
them a permit to organize, but no permit shall be issued hereunder to 
any corporation by the same name as any other corporation then oper- 
ating under the laws of this State or of any law of the United States or 
of any person, firm or partnership then conducting a banking business, 
or by a name so similar to the name of any other corporation then Oper- 
ating under the laws of this State, or of any law of the United States or 
of any person, firm, partnership or corporation then conducting a bank- 
ing business as in the opinion of the Auditor of Public Accounts will 
create confusion, provided that a permit may be issued hereunder to a 
corporation by a name the same as or similar to the name of any person, 
firm or parntership, then conducting a banking business, by and with 



BANKS AND BANKING. 225 



the written consent of such person, firm or partnership of the same or 
similar name, such name of such proposed corporation not being the 
same or similar to the name of any banking corporation then operating 
under the laws of this State or of the United States, and all associations 
formed under this Act shall have their capital stock divided into shares 
of one hundred dollars ($100) each. 

§ 3. As soon as may be after receipt of authorization, books of 
subscription to the capital stock may be opened, and when the capital 
stock shall have been fully subscribed for a meeting of the subscribers 
to the stock of such association shall be called (each subscriber having 
had at least three days' notice) for determination of the number and 
election of directors to serve as managers for one year, and until their 
successors are elected. And no director shall be elected unless he shall 
have received votes representing at least a majority of the shares of the 
association; and the voting may be done by person, or by proxy, and at 
such election the subscribers or stockholders shall have the right to vote 
for the number of shares owned or subscribed by him for as many per- 
sons as there are directors to be elected, or to accumulate such shares 
and give one candidate as many votes as the number of directors multi- 
plied by the number of his shares of stock shall equal, or to distribute 
them on the same principle among as many candidates as he shall deem 
proper. 

§ 4. The directors so elected may proceed to organize by the elec- 
tion of one of their number as president, and may appoint the necessary 
officers and employees and fix their salaries to carry on the business of 
the bank or association and make by-laws (not inconsistent with this 
Act) for the government of the bank or association; and each director 
shall take and subscribe to an oath such as the Auditor shall prescribe 
of fealty to the bank or association of which he is director and that he 
will, so far as the duty involves on him, diligently and honestly admin- 
ister the affairs of such bank or association and will not knowingly vio- 
late or willingly permit to be violated any of the provisions of this Act; 
and that he is the owner in good faith and in his own right of the num- 
ber of shares of stock required by this Act; and that the same is not 
hypothecated or in any way pledged as security for any loan or debt. 
Such oath subscribed by the director making it and certified by a proper 
officer authorized to administer oaths shall be immediately transmitted 
to the Auditor and shall be filed and preserved by him in his office. 
The directors shall cause to be kept suitable books of record of all the 
transactions of the bank or association and shall furnish to the Auditor 
lists of the stockholders and copies of any other records the Auditor may . 
require. And there shall be an annual meeting of the stockholders for 
the election of directors each year on the first Monday in January unless 
some otfcer date shall be fixed by the by-laws of the association. Any

Every director of any bank or association organized under the pro- 
visions of this Act must own in his own right, free of any lien or in- 
cumberance at least ten shares of the capital stock of such bank or asso- 
ciation of which he is a director, and stock certificates for not less than 
ten shares shall be filed unendorsed and unassigned with the cashier 
of the bank during his term as director. Any director who ceases to be 
the owner of ten shares of the capital stock of such bank or association, 
or who becomes in any form disqualified shall therefor vacate his place 
as such director. The directors of any bank or association organized 
under the provisions of this Act shall hold regular meetings at least 
once each month and there shall be present a quorum as may be pre- 
scribed by the by-laws of such bank or association approved by the 
Auditor of Public Accounts. 

Any officer, director or employee of any bank or association organ- 
ized under the provisions of this Act, who shall wilfully and knowingly 
subscribe to or make or cause to be made any false statement with intent 
to deceive any person or persons authorized to examine into the affairs 
of such bank or association, upon conviction thereof, shall be punished 
by imprisonment of not less than one year or more than ten years. 

§ 5. When the directors have organized, as in section 4 of this 
Act, and the capital stock of'such association shall have been all fully 
paid in and record of the same laid before the Auditor, he shall by 
himself or some competent person of his appointment, make a thorough 
examination into the affairs of such association, and if satisfied the 
authorized capital has been paid in, and that the association has the full 
amount dedicated to the business, including proposed surplus, if any, 
and when they pay into the Auditor's office the reasonable expenses of 
such examination, he shall give them a written or printed certificate 
under seal authorizing them to commence the business designated in 
section 1 of this Act. And said certificate and the permit issued in ac- 
cordance herewith, duly certified by said Auditor, shall be filed and 
recorded in the office for the recording of deeds in the county where 
such bank is organized and the original or a certified copy thereof shall 
be evidence in all courts of the existence and authority of said corpora- 
tion to do business. Upon the recording of said certificate and permit 
said bank shall be deemed fully organized and may proceed to business. 

The Auditor may, in his discretion, withhold the issuing of the 
said certificate, authorizing the commencement of business when he is not 
satisfied as to the personal character and standing of the officers or 
directors elected or appointed, in accordance with sections three and 
four of this Act; or when he has reason to believe that the bank is or- 
ganized for any purpose other than that contemplated by this Aqf. 

§ 6. Every stockholder in any bank or banking association organ- 
ized under the provisions of this Act shall be individually responsible

all its liabilities accruing while he or she remains such stockholder. Jt 
is hereby made the duty of the president and cashier, within thirty 
days after organization, to file in the office of the recorder of deeds of 
the county in which such bank is located, a certified list of all the origi- 
nal stockholders, giving the number of shares of stock held by each, and 
thereafter a certificate of all transfer of stock, not later than ten days 
after such transfer. No transfer of stock shall operate as a release of 
liability provided in this section. 

§ 7. Any and all persons and associations organizing under the 
provisions of this Act shall make to the Auditor a report according to 
the form which may be prescribed by him, verified by oath or affirmation 
of the president or cashier of such association, which report shall exhibit 
in detail and under appropriate heads the resources and liabilities of 
such bank or association at the close of business of any day he may 
choose; and he shall call for such reports at least once every three 
months of each year, and the- officers of said bank shall transmit the 
same to the -Auditor within five days after receiving call for the same ; 
and any bank failing to make and transmit such report, or to comply 
with any provisions of this Act, shall be subject to a penalty of one 
hundred dollars for each day after five days that such report is delayed 
beyond that time. And he shall cause such report to be published at the 
expense of such bank in some newspaper published in the city or town 
where such bank is located; or if no newspaper is published in such 
town, then in the nearest newspaper to such town. Every such quar- 
terly report shall be accompanied with a fee of five dollars to defray 
the expense of examining the same and preparing it for publication. 

§ 8. The Auditor, as often as he shall deem necessary or proper, 
and at least once in each year, shall appoint a suitable person or persons 
to make an examination of the affairs of every bank established under 
the provisions of this Act, which person shall not be a stockholder or 
officer or employee of any bank which he may be directed to examine, 
and who shall have power to make a thorough examination into all the 
affairs of the bank, and in so doing to examine any of the officers or 
agents or employees thereof on oath, and shall make a full and detailed 
report of the condition of the bank to the Auditor; and the bank shall 
not be subject to any other visitorial power than such as may be author- 
ized by this Act, except such as are vested in the several courts of law 
and chancery. And there shall be paid to the Auditor of Public Accounts 
for each such examination, a fee of twenty-five dollars ($25.00) and two 
cents (2c) additional for each one thousand dollars ($1,000) of the 
total assets of the bank examined. 

§ 9. Associations organized under this Act shall be bodies cor- 
porate and politic for the period for which they may be organized, may 
sue and be sued, may have a common seal which they may alter or renew 
at pleasure, may own, possess and may carry as assets the real estate 
necessary in which to do its banking business, and such other real estate 
to which it may obtain title in the collection of its debts, but shall not 
carry in its assets any real estate except its banking house for the period 
of more than five years after acquiring title to the same. 



228 BANKS AND BANKING. 



§ 10. The total liabilities to any association, of any person or of 
any corporation or firm for money borrowed, including in the liabilities 
of a company or firm the liabilities of the several members thereof, shall 
at no time exceed fifteen per cent of the amount of the capital stock of 
such association actually paid in and unimpaired, and fifteen per cent 
of its unimpaired surplus fund : Provided, however, that the total lia- 
bilities of any such person, company or firm shall at no time exceed thirty 
per cent of the amount of capital actually paid in : And, provided, fur- 
ther, that undivided profits shall not be construed as a part of the sur- 
plus. But (1) the discount of bills of exchange drawn in good faith 
against actually existing values; (2) the discount of commercial or 
business paper actually owned by the person negotiating the same; (3) 
the purchase of or loaning money in exchange for, evidences of indebt- 
edness which shall be secured by mortgage or trust deed upon productive 
real estate, the value of which, exclusive of buildings, as ascertained by 
the oath of two disinterested appraisers, is double the amount of the 
principal debt secured, and which mortgage or trust deed is ascertained 
by a guaranty policy of a title guaranty company approved by the Audi- 
tor of Public Accounts, or by a registrar's certificate of title in any 
county having adopted the provisions of the Land Titles Act, or by the 
opinion of a reputable attorney at law to be a first lien upon the real 
estate therein described; and (4) the purchase of, or loaning money in 
exchange for, evidences of indebtedness secured by a written pledge 
covering live stock, the president, vice president or cashier of such bank 
or association certifying at the time of such purchase or loan that the 
value of such live stock is double the principal debt secured, shall not be 
considered as money borrowed within the meaning of this section. 

In computing the total liabilities of any person, corporation or 
firm for the purpose of this section, there shall not be included any lia- 
bilities of such person, corporation or firm which shall be secured by 
collateral approved as sufficient security therefor by the Auditor of 
Public Accounts, and deposited with him, or which shall be secured by 
a good and sufficient bond conditioned to indemnify and save harmless 
such bank from loss or damage on account of failure to pay such loan 
on maturity, filed with and approved by the Auditor of Public Ac- 
counts. 

And, provided, further, that if any bank or association existing 
hereunder shall cause to be deposited with the Auditor of Public Ac- 
counts a good and sufficient bond, or shall cause to be deposited with 
him securities approved by him (such securities not being assets of said 
Lank or association), the Auditor of Public Accounts may issue to such 
bank or association a permit, granting permission to such bank or 
association, within the period of one year from the date of said 
permit, to carry, without liability against the officers and directors 
of such bank or association, on account of such loans being excessive, 
loans otherwise excessive under the provisions hereof, to an aggregate 
amount equal to the amount of such bond, or to the value of such se- 
curities as determined by the Auditor of Public Accounts. Such bond

shall run to the Auditor of Public Accounts for the use of said bank or 
association, its creditors and stockholders, and shall undertake to in- 
demnify and save harmless said bank or association, its stockholders 
and creditors, against loss on account of loans carried under the permit 
issued by the Auditor of Public Accounts in pursuance of the filing 
of such bond; and such securities shall be deposited under a like con- 
tract running to the Auditor of Public Accounts for the use of said 
bank or association, its creditors and stockholders, undertaking that 
such securities shall be held to indemnify and save harmless said bank 
or association, its stockholders and creditors, against loss on account 
of loans carried under the permit issued by the Auditor of Public Ac- 
counts in pursuance of the deposit of said securities with the Auditor : 
Provided, further, that if in the opinion of the Auditor of Public Ac- 
counts such bond or such securities shall become impaired in value, the 
Auditor of Public Accounts may revoke such permit unless such bank 
or association shall file with the Auditor of Public Accounts such ad- 
ditional bond or such additional securities as will, in the opinion of 
the Auditor of Public Accounts, fully indemnify such bank or associa- 
tion, its stockholders and creditors, againet loss by reason of loans made 
under such permit. 

And, -provided, also, that the total liabilities of any such person, 
firm or corporation for money borrowed under the provisions of this 
section shall not exceed twenty-five per cent of the deposits of any bank 
or association, and also that such total liabilities shall at no time exceed 
the amount of* the capital stock of 'such bank or association. 

Every such loan made in violation of the provisions hereof shall be 
due and payable according to its terms and the remedy for *the recovery 
of any money loaned in violation of the provisions hereof or for the 
enforcement of any agreement collateral or otherwise made in connec- 
tion with any such loan shall not be held to be impaired, affected or 
prohibited by reason of such violation, but such remedy shall exist not- 
withstanding the same. But every director of any such association 
who shall violate, or participate in, or assent to such violation, or who 
shall permit any of the officers, agents or servants of the association to 
violate the provisions hereof, shall be held liable in his personal and 
individual capacity for all damages which the association, its share- 
holders or any other person shall have sustained in consequence of such 
violation. •' ^ 

It shall not be lawful for any bank to loan to its president, or to 
any of its vice presidents or its salaried officers or employees, or to cor- 
porations or firms controlled by them, or in the management of which 
any of them are actively engaged, until an application for such loan 
shall have been first approved, both as to security and amount, by the 
board of directors.

(a) In all cities, towns and villages of not exceeding five hun- 
dred (500) inhabitants with a minimum capital stock of ten thousand

but a bank so incorporated in a city, town or village of over ten thous- 
and (10,000) inhabitants and not exceeding fifty thousand (50,000) 
inhabitants, with a capital stock of not less than one hundred thous- 
and dollars ($100,000), shall not accept deposits in excess of five hun- 
dred thousand dollars ($500,000), so long as its capital stock is less 
than one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000). Such bank may at any 
time increase its capital stock to not less than one hundred thousand 
dollars ($100,000), and if the Auditor shall find the deposits in excess 
of the limitation contained herein, he shall order such bank to increase 
its capital stock to at least one hundred thousand dollars ($100,000) 
within ninety days from the elate of such order. 

If any such bank shall fail to increase its capital stock within said 
time, the Auditor of Public Accounts shall revoke and cancel the per- 
mit and authority of such bank to carry on such banking business, and 
shall file a duly certified copy of such revocation and cancellation at 
the office for the recording of deeds in the county where such bank has 
conducted such business, . and upon the recording of said revocation, 
said bank shall cease to receive deposits and shall proceed to dispose of 
its assets and wind up its affairs within one year from the date of such 
revocation, and at the end of said year the authority of said bank to 
conduct any business under the provisions of this Act shall cease and 
determine. 

(f) In all cities, towns and villages of more than fifty thousand 
(50,000) inhabitants, with a minimum capital stock of one hundred

BANKS AND BANKING. 231 



Such bank may at any time increase its capital stock to not less than 
two hundred thousand dollars ($200,000), and if the Auditor shall find 
the deposits in excess of the limitation contained herein, he shall order 
such bank to increase its capital stock to at least two hundred thousand 
dollars ($200,000), within ninety days from the date of such order. 

If any such bank shall fail so to increase i-° capital stock within 
said time, the Auditor of Public Accounts shal) * evoke and cancel the 
permit and authority of such bank to carry on such banking business, 
and shall file a duly certified copy of such revocation and cancellation 
at the office for the recording of deeds in the county where such bank 
has conducted such business, and upon the recording of said revoca- 
tion, said bank shall cease to receive deposits and shall proceed to dis- 
pose of its assets and wind up its affairs within one year from the date 
of such revocation, and at the end of said year the authority of said 
bank to conduct any business under the provisions of this Act shall cease 
and determine. 

Should the capital stock of any bank organized under this Act be- 
come impaired, the Auditor shall give notice to the president to have the 
impairment made good by assessment of the stockholders or a reduc- 
tion of the capital stock of such bank, if the reduction should not bring 
the capital below the provisions of this section; and if the capital stock 
of said bank shall remain impaired for thirty days after notice by the 
Auditor, he shall have power, and it is hereby made his duty to enter 
suit against each stockholder in the name of the People of the State ol 
Illinois, for the use of said bank, for his or her pro rata proportion of 
said impairment, and when collected shall pay over the amount thereof 
to said bank, and the judgment in such case shall be for the amount 
claimed with all costs and reasonable attorney's fees, which fees shall 
be fixed by the court, or, if it appears from the reports made to the Audi- 
tor under this Act, or from any examination made by or on behalf of 
the Auditor that the conditions of any bank organized under this Act 
are such that the impairment of the capital stock cannot be made good 
or that the business of any such bank is being conducted in an illegal, 
fraudulent or unsafe manner, he may, in his discretion, without having 
taken the steps provided in this section to make good the impaired capi- 
tal stock, forthwith appoint a receiver, and require of him such bond 
and security as he deems proper. Such receiver, under the direction of 
the Auditor, shall take possession of the books, records and assets of 
every description of such bank, collect all debts, dues and claims be- 
longing to it, and, upon the order of a court of record of competent 
jurisdiction, may sell or compound all bad or doubtful debts, and, on 
a like order, may sell all the real and personal property of such bank, 
on such terms as the court shall direct; and may, if necessary to pay 
the debts of such bank, enforce the individual liability of the stockholders. 

The Auditor of Public Accounts shall, upon appointing a receiver, 
cause notice to be given by advertisement in such newspaper as he may 
direct for three consecutive months, calling on all persons who may have 



232 BANKS AND BANKING. 



claims against such bank to present the same, and to make legal proof 
thereof. 

From time to time the Auditor of Public Accounts shall make a 
ratable dividend of the moneys collected by such receiver on all such 
claims as may have been proved to his satisfaction or adjudicated in a 
court of competent jurisdiction, and, as the proceeds of the assets of such 
bank are collected, shall make further dividends on all claims previously 
proved or adjudicated; and the remainder of the proceeds, if any, shall 
be paid over to the shareholders of such bank, or their legal representa- 
tives, in proportion to the stock by them respectively held. 

Whenever any such bank against which proceedings have been insti- 
tuted, or for which a receiver has been appointed as aforesaid, on account 
of any alleged impairment of its capital stock Or alleged conduct of its 
business, in an illegal, fraudulent or unsafe manner, denies such grounds, 
it may at any time within ten days, apply to the Circuit Court of Sanga- 
mon County, Illinois, to enjoin further proceedings in the premises; 
and such court after citing the Auditor of Public Accounts to show 
cause why further proceedings should not be enjoined, and after the 
decision of the court or finding of a jury that such grounds do not exist, 
shall make an order enjoining the Auditor, and any receiver acting 
under his direction, from all further proceedings on account of such 
alleged grounds. 

All expenses of any preliminary or other examinations into the 
condition of any such bank shall be paid by such bank. All expenses of 
any such receivership, including reasonable receiver's, solicitor's and 
attorney's fees to be approved by the Auditor of Public Accounts, shall 
be paid out of the assets of such bank. 

No bill shall be filed or proceedings commenced in any court for 
the dissolution or for the winding up of the affairs or for the appoint- 
ment of a receiver for any such banking corporation^ on the grounds of 
insolvency or impairment of the capital stock of such banking corpora- 
tion or upon the ground that such bank is being conducted in an illegal, 
fraudulent or unsafe manner, except in the name and by the authority 
of the Auditor of Public Accounts, represented by the Attorney General. 

At any time, whenever a majority in number and amount of the 
creditors of any such bank or association, after any such receiver shall 
have been appointed, shall petition the Auditor of Public Accounts for 
the appointment of any person nominated by them as receiver, who is 
a reputable person and elector of the county in which such bank or asso- 
ciation is located, it shall be the duty of the Auditor to make such ap- 
pointment, and all the rights and duties of his predecessor shall at once 
devolve upon such appointee. 

§ 12. Whenever the board of directors, managers or trustees of 
any corporation having any banking powers existing by virtue of any 
general or special law of this State, or any corporation with banking 
powers hereafter organized under the provisions of this Act, may desire 
to change the name, to change the place of business, to increase or de- 
crease the capital stock, to extend the duration of its charter, to increase

such stockholders the question of such change of name, change of place 
of business, increase or decrease of number of directors, managers or 
trustees, increase or decrease of capital stock, extension of duration of 
its charter, or consolidation with some other corporation, as the case 
may be : Provided, that in changing the name of any corporation under 
the provisions hereof, no name shall be assumed or adopted by any cor- 
poration organized under the laws of this State without the consent of 
such other corporation, and that in no case shall the capital stock be 
diminished to the prejudice of the creditors of such corporation, or the 
number of directors, managers or trustees be reduced to less than three 
or increased to more than twenty-one. 

Such special meeting shall be called by delivering personally, or by 
depositing in the postofhee at least thirty days before the time fixed for 
such meeting, a notice properly addressed to each stockholder, signed by 
a majority of said directors, managers or trustees, stating the time, place 
and object of such meeting. A general notice of the time, place and ob- 
ject of such meeting shall also be published for three successive weeks 
in some newspaper printed in or nearest to the county in which the prin- 
cipal business office of said corporation is located. At any such meeting 
stockholders may vote in person or by proxy, each stockholder being 
entitled to one vote for each share of stock held by him, and votes repre- 
senting two-thirds of all the stock of the corporation shall be necessary 
for the adoption of the proposed change of name, place of business, num- 
ber of directors, managers or trustees, amount of capital stock, extension 
of duration of charter or consolidation with some other company. At 
any regular meeting, or at the time and place specified in said notice 
of a special meeting called for that purpose, said propositions, or any of 
them, may be submited to a vote, and if it shall appear that two-thirds of 
all votes represented by the whole stock of such corporation are in 
favor of the propositions or any of them, so submitted, a certificate there- 
of, verified by the affidavit of the president, and under seal of the cor- 
poration, shall be filed in the office of the Auditor, and a like certificate 
filed for record in the office of the recorder of deeds of the county where 
the principal business office of such corporation is located ; and upon the 
filing of such certificate the changes proposed and voted for at such meet- 
ing, as to name, place of business, increase or decrease of capital stock, 
or number of directors, managers or trustees, extension of duration of 
charter, or consolidation with some other company, shall be and is hereby 
declared accomplished in accordance with the said vote of the stock- 
holders : And, provided, further, that any corporation with banking 
powers availing himself of or accepting the benefits of, or formed under, 
this Act, and all corporations with banking powers existing by virtue of 
any special charter or general law of this State, shall be subject to the 
provisions and requirements of this Act in every particular, as if organ- 
ized under this Act. 



234 BANKS AND BANKING. 



Such corporation shall, upon the filing of said certificate;, cause to 
be published in some newspaper in or nearest the county in which their

three successive weeks. 

Such change of name, place of business, increase or decrease of capi- 
tal stock, increase or decrease of number of directors, managers or trus- 
tees, extension of duration of charter, or consolidation of one corporation 
with another, shall not affect suits pending in which such corporations 
or corporation shall be parties; nor shall such changes affect causes of 
action, nor the rights .of persons in any particular ; nor shall suits brought 
against such corporation by its former name be abated for that cause. 

§ 13. All corporations with banking powers consolidating as pro- 
vided in section 12, shall forward to the Auditor the complete proceeding

elected at the general election for . aldermen ' in the year 1920. Any 
person serving as alderman under an election of 1920 may be a can- 
didate for alderman in the general election for aldermen to be held 
in the year 1921, and his election at such time shall constitute an 
abandonment of the office held by him under his election in the year 
1920 for the unexpired term thereof, if any, as soon as he has quali- 
fied under his election in the year 1921. A general election for alder- 
men shall be held in the year 1923, at which one alderman shall be 
elected from each ward, and thereafter general elections for aldermen

of aldermen first elected shall always expire with the term of the 
mayor then in office, and new elections for a two or four year term, as 
the case may be, shall be held at the time when the mayor is to be 
elected. If this Act becomes operative in time to govern the general 
election of aldermen to be held in an even numbered year which im- 
mediately precedes the year in which a mayor is to be elected, alder- 
men at such election shall be elected -for the term of one year, and a 
general election for aldermen for a two or four year term, as the case 
may be, shall be held at the time when the mayor is to be elected. If 
this Act becomes operative in time to govern the general election of 
aldermen to be held in an even numbered year other than that which 
immediately precedes the year in which a mayor is to be elected, 
aldermen at such election shall be elected for a one year term, alder- 
men at the next general election for aldermen to be elected for a. two 
year term, if a two year term shall have been adopted by a popular 
vote under the terms of this Act ; if under the terms of this Act a 
four year term for aldermen shall have been adopted then aldermen 
shall be elected for a three year term at the election of such even- num- 
bered year. New elections for a two or four year term, as the case may 
be, shall then take place at the time when the mayor is to be next 
elected.

provisions of law in force and operative in the City of Chicago for 
such elections at the time that such elections are held, and vacancies 
occuring in such office shall be filled in the manner prescribed by law

until a public hearing has been held upon the subject matter of the 
proposed ordinance before a commission, board or committee authorized 
by the city council in cities, or the president and board of trustees in

subject matter, and an opportunity afforded the owners of land or lots

tory as indicated in such notice without another such notice and public 
hearing. Said public hearing shall be conducted by the said commis-

signatures of such owners, the location of the property and the amount 
of frontage owned by each stated thereon after each name, and the same 
may be filed with the commission, board or committee designated as the 
proper authority to conduct such proceedings. Upon the filing of such 
objection, if it shall appear that the owners of such a majority according 
to frontage are opposed to the formation or creation of such district as 
is proposed, or to the regulations or restrictions proposed for any such 
district, all proceedings for same shall be discontinued, and no ordinance 
for the creation or formation of such district in such territory shall be 
passed, and no new proceedings for the formation or creation of such 
district within the said territory shall be begun within one year after 
the filing of such objection : Provided, that if said objection shall state 
that it is directed only against certain of the proposed regulations and 
restrictions, specifying same, new proceedings as herein provided for 
may be begun at any time for the purpose of creating such district after 
changing or modifying the proposed regulations and restrictions. 

§ 4. The regulations imposed and the districts created under the 
authority of this Act may be amended, supplemented or changed from 
time to time by ordinance after the ordinance establishing same has gone 
into effect, but no such change shall be made without notice and public 
hearing in the same manner as when such district is first created, and 
in case of written protest against a proposed amendment, supplement or 
change, signed by the owners of twenty per cent of the frontage proposed 
to be altered, or by the owners of twenty per cent of the frontage im- 
mediately adjoining or across an alley therefrom, or by the owners of 
twenty per cent of the frontage directly opposite the frontage proposed 
to be altered, filed with the said commission, board or committee so 
designated, such amendment shall not be passed except by the favorable 
vote of two-thirds of the members of the city council in cities, or of the 
members of the board of trustees in villages : Provided, that it shall 
always be within the power of the owners of a majority of the lands 
and lots according to frontage within a proposed addition to such dis- 
trict to prevent such addition by filing objection thereto as herein 
provided. 

§ 5. Upon the passage of an ordinance under the authority of this 
Act a certified copy of the same, together with a plat of the territory 
affected certified to by the mayor of the city or president of the board 
of trustees of the village, as the case may be, shall be filed for record in 
the office of the recorder of deeds of the county in which the said terri- 
tory is located, and no such ordinance shall take effect until the same

An Act in relation to mutual building, loan and homestead associations. 

Section 1. Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois, 
represented in the General Assembly: Definition.] Every associa- 
tion heretofore or hereafter organized under any law providing for 
the incorporation of building, loan and homestead associations, and 
every association heretofore or hereafter organized or incorporated 
under any law for the purpose of assisting its members to accumulate 
and invest their savings, by accumulating a fund from periodical pay- 
ments on its stock, or otherwise, to be loaned among its members, shall 
be known in this Act as a mutual building, loan or homestead associa- 
tion. 

Associations organized under this Act may operate under either 
the serial, or the permanent plan, or both, as their by-laws may pro- 
vide. Associations issuing shares at fixed times, or in series, shall be 
known as serial associations, and associations issuing shares with a 
minimum payment, or when required, or without fixed dates of issue, 
shall be known as permanent plan associations. Such associations organ- 
ized under the laws of this State shall be known as "domestic" associa- 
tions, and those organized under the laws of any other state, territory 
or nation, shall be known as "foreign" associations. 

§ 2. License, how obtained.] Whenever any number of per- 
sons, not less than ten (10), may desire to become incorporated as a 
mutual building, loan or homestead association, for the purpose of ac- 
cumulating funds to be loaned to the members thereof only, they shall 



CORPORATIONS. 209 



make a statement to that effect under their hands and seals, duly 
acknowledged before some officer in the manner provided for the ac- 
knowledgment of deeds. Such statement shall set forth the name of 
the proposed association, the capital stock to be accumulated, its loca- 
tion and the duration of the association, which statement shall be filed 
in the office of the Auditor of Public Accounts. The Auditor of Pub- 
lic Accounts shall thereupon issue to such persons a license as com- 
missioners to open books for subscription to the shares of stock of said 
association at such time and place as they may determine : Provided, 
however, that the Auditor of Public Accounts may withhold the issuing 
of a license to commissioners t.o open books fgr subscription to the 
shares of stock of said association if he is, not satisfied as to the personal 
character and standing of the officers or directors to be elected, or if 
the proposed location would not warrant the issuance of a charter, but 
no charter shall be issued to two associations having the same or similar 
names. 

§ 3. Must organize and do business under the act — pen- 
alty.] It shall be unlawful for any company, association, corporation, 
organization or co-partnership, assuming to be a company or corpora- 
tion, to transact business in this State for the purpose of receiving or 
accepting moneys from their subscribers, contributors or members, in 
installments for the purpose of creating a fund with which to make 
loans to members only, unless such company, association, corporation, 
organization or co-partnership is organized and doing business under 
this Act, and whoever violates any provision of this section shall be 
punished by a fine of not more than one thousand dollars ($1,000). 
The same may be recovered in any court having competent jurisdiction 
in the name of the People of the State of Illinois on the relation of 
the Auditor of Public Accounts for the benefit of the county wherein 
such person or persons, association or corporation is located. 

§ 4. Meeting to organize.] That whenever two hundred shares 
or more of the capital stock shall be subscribed in cities, towns or vil- 
lages of fewer than five thousand inhabitants; and five hundred shares 
or more in cities, towns or villages of five thousand inhabitants or more, 
the commissioners shall convene a meeting of the subscribers for the 
purpose of electing at least five subscribers as directors, adopting by- 
laws and the transaction of such other business as shall come before 
them. Notice thereof shall be given by depositing in the post office, 
properly addressed to each subscriber, at least ten days before the time 
fixed, a written or printed notice, stating the object, time and place 
of such meeting. Directors of such corporations organized under this 
Act shall be elected, classified and hold their office for such period of 
time as is provided by general law governing the election and classi- 
fication of directors, trustees or managers of corporations. 

§ 5. Organization completed.] The commissioners shall make 
a full report of their proceedings, including therein a copy of the notice 
provided for in the foregoing section, a copy of the subscription list, 
a copy of the by-laws adopted by the association, and the names of the 
directors elected and their respective terms of office, which report shall 
be sworn to by at least a majority of the commissioners and shall be

filed in the office of the Auditor of Public Accounts, and the Auditor 
of Public Accounts shall submit said by-laws to the Attorney General, 
who shall report whether such by-laws conform to the requirements of 
this Act, and if approved by the Attorney General, the Auditor of 
Public Accounts shall thereupon issue a certificate of the complete organ- 
ization of the association, making a part thereof a copy of all papers 
filed in his office in and about the organization of the association, duly 
authenticated under his hand and seal of office; and the same shall be 
recorde'd in the office of the recorder of deeds in the county in which 
the principal office of the association is located. Upon recording said 
copy the association shall be deemed iully organized and may proceed 
to business. 

Unless any such association shall organize and proceed to business 
as provided in this Act within six months after the date of such license, 
the license shall be deemed revoked and all proceedings thereunder void. 
All subsequent amendments or alterations of said by-laws shall be sub- 
mitted to the Auditor of Public Accounts and approved by the Attorney 
General, and be recorded in like manner as the original by-laws before 
the same shall become operative; and only such by-laws as shall have 
been submitted, approved and recorded as herein provided shall be 
deemed operative. 

§ 6. Corporate rights.] Corporations formed under this Act 
shall be bodies corporate and politic for the period for which they are 
organized; may sue and be sued; may have a common seal, which they 
may alter or renew at pleasure. 

§ 7. Directors — officers.] The corporate powers shall be ex- 
ercised- by a board of directors of not less than five (5) in number, all 
of whom shall be bona fide shareholders in such association and resi- 
dents of the State of Illinois. The officers shall consist of a president, 
vice-president, secretary, treasurer and such other officers as the by- 
laws shall provide, to be elected at the annual meeting of the directors. 
The duties of the officers, their terms of office, the time and manner 
of their election, the manner of filling vacancies, the time of holding 
periodical meetings of the officers and shareholders, the manner of 
calling special meetings not provided for in this Act, the qualification 
of electors, and the manner of voting, shall be determined by the by- 
laws, when not provided for in this Act. Unless the compensation of 
the officers, directors and committees shall be provided for in the by- 
laws, the directors shall fix and determine the same. The directors 
shall have all such powers not enumerated herein as are necessary and 
proper to enable such association to carry out the purpose of its organi- 
zation. 

§ 8. Corporate existence, not to cease on failure to elect, 
etc.] No corporation or association, created under this Act, shall 
cease or expire from neglect on the part of the corporation to elect 
officers at the time mentioned in their charter and by-laws, and all 
officers elected by such corporation shall hold their offices until their 
successors are duly elected. 

§ 9. Officers' bonds.] Every person appointed or elected to 
any position requiring the receipt, payment, management or use of 



CORPORATIONS. 301 



money belonging to such association shall, within thirty (30) days 
after such appointment or election, become bonded with two or more 
good and sufficient sureties or in some good and responsible 
fidelity insurance company, in such sum as the directors shall 
require or approve. Such bonds shall be executed annually 
and shall be filed with the Auditor of Public Accounts of this 
State within ten days next after the approval thereof by the board of 
directors, and the fee for filing same shall be one dollar ($1.00). Such 
bond shall be sufficient in amount to protect the association from loss 
by reason of malfeasance in office or failure to faithfully perform and 
discharge the duties of his position. No officer or employe who is 
required to give bond, shall be deemed qualified to enter upon the dis- 
charge of his duties until his bond shall have been approved by a 
majority of the board of directors by a written endorsement thereon 
and filed with the Auditor of Public Accounts as herein required. Any 
officer or employe who shall neglect or refuse to file such bond at the 
time and manner as herein provided, shall be subject to a fine of- not 
less than twenty-five dollars ($25.00) nor more than two hundred dol- 
lars ($200.00) and his office or position shall become vacant and shall 
be filled in the manner herein or in the by-laws provided. Such fine 
may be recovered in any court having competent jurisdiction in the 
name of the People of the State of Illinois on the relation of the said 
Auditor, for the benefit of the county wherein the said association is 
located, or in which such officer or officers may reside. 

§ 10. Capital to be accumulated.] The capital to be ac- 
cumulated shall be divided into shares having an ultimate value of 
one hundred dollars ($100.00) each. The shares shall be deemed to 
be personal property in the hands ©f the members, transferable upon 
the books of the association in the manner provided in the by-laws. 
Each shareholder shall pay to said association as a contribution to 
the capital thereof, the sum fixed a's dues for -each and every share 
held by him, until each share shall reach the ultimate value thereof. 
The shares may be issued as required or at certain periods designated 
in the by-laws, or in series, and subdivided into classes, each series or 
class providing a different payment of dues, payable in such amount 
or amounts, and at such time or times as the by-laws shall provide. 
Any such association, if the by-laws shall so provide, may issue shares 
with a minimum payment, or with a single payment and upon such 
single payment shares it shall be lawful for such association to make 
agreements with the holders thereof to waive participation in the gen- 
eral profits of the association in consideration of a fixed annual per 
cent of profit or interest to be paid, which shall in no event exceed 
the net earnings of the association. New shares may be issued in lieu 
of any shares withdrawn, redeemed, cancelled or matured, providing 
the ultimate value of the total number of shares outstanding at any 
one time shall not exceed the authorized capital stock of the associa- 
tion. All shares heretofore issued by any association upon which in- 
stallments have been paid in advance, together with the interest al- 
lowed, or paid thereon, are herebv legalized and validated. Every 
share shall be subject to a lien for the pa}anent of unpaid installments 



302 CORPORATIONS. 



and such other charges as may be lawfully incurred thereon under the 
provisions of this Act, and the by-laws may prescribe the manner of 
enforcing such lien. 

All funds of the association shall be deposited in the name of 
the association in such bank or trust company as may be designated as 
depository by the treasurer and approved by the board of directors. 

§ 11. Power to borrow money.] The directors shall have 
power to borrow money for such temporary uses and purposes of the 
association as the exigencies of the business may demand and as are 
not inconsistent with the objects of .the association. To secure such 
loans, the directors may cause the obligation or obligations of the as- 
sociation to be issued therefor, bearing interest at not to exceed the 
then legal contract rate. No such loan or loans shall have a longer 
duration than one year nor shall the aggregate amount of such out- 
standing indebtedness at any one time exceed ten per centum of the 
assets of the association. Before any money shall be borrowed, the 
board of directors shall first, by a majority vote, pass and record a 
resolution to that effect. 

§ 12. Matured shares.] Whenever any shares reach the value 
of one hundred dollars ($100.00) each, either by the payment of dues, 
the addition of regular dividends, or the addition of interest allowed, 
they shall be deemed to be matured, and all payments of dues thereon 
shall cease, and the owner thereof or his assignee, shall be paid out 
of funds of the association the matured value thereof, in the manner 
provided for voluntary withdrawals. With the consent of the directors, 
there may be issued in lieu of such shares matured stock certificates 
upon which the interest to be paid shall not exceed the actual net 
earnings of the association, payable at such times and in such manner 
as may be expressed in said certificate. Provided, that at no time shall 
the aggregate amount of such shares outstanding exceed twenty per 
centum of the assets of the association. 

§ 13. Withdrawals, voluntary.] If the bj^-laws shall so pro- 
vide, any member desiring to withdraw all or any part of the credit 
on his shares from any association doing business in this State, may 
be required to make a written application which shall be received and. 
filed in numerical order, and payments upon the same shall be made 
in the order in which they are filed. Upon withdrawal such member 
shall be entitled to receive the full amount of dues paid in and such 
interest thereon as fixed in the by-laws, or such proportion of the profits 
apportioned thereto as the board of directors may, from time to time, 
by resolution determine, less such charges of the character enumerated 
in this Act as may be due thereon; provided, that the amount of 
such interest or profits paid on withdrawals shall not exceed the actua] 
earnings of the shares sought to be withdrawn; provided, further. 
that at no time shall more than one-half of the funds in the treasury 
of the association be applicable to the demand of withdrawing members 
or the payment of matured shares, without the consent of the board 
of directors; provided, further, that any member having pledged his 
or her shares as security for an advance, without other security, may 
withdraw the same and receive the evidence of indebtedness given for 



CORPORATIONS. 303 



such advance and such balance in cash, if any, as may be to the credit 
of such shares, but such withdrawal shall be subject to the same regula- 
tions in all other respects as in the case of shares not pledged. No 
such association" shall be permitted to carry for any member any de- 
mand, commercial or checking account. Nothing in this section shall 
prevent members from withdrawing funds by non-negotiable orders. 

§ 14. Withdrawals, involuntary.] The directors may, in 
their discretoin, under the rules made by them in conformity with the 
by-laws, retire the unpledged shares, in the order of the issue of such 
shares, by enforcing withdrawals of the same, and the owners shall 
be paid the full value of their shares, as determined at the last pre- 
ceding distribution of profits, together with all dues paid since such 
distribution, less any unpaid fines; provided, that all shares which 
have reached matured value and all single payment shares, that may 
be outstanding, shall be first retired under the provisions of this Act. 

§ 15. Advance on shares — balance — settlements.] Any 
member who shall have obtained a loan or advance on his shares, who 
shall have given real estate as security, may at any time upon giving 
thirty days' previous notice in writing, repay the same. On settle- 
ment such member shall be charged with the full amount of such loan 
or advance, together with any and all arrearages due thereon, or on the 
shares pledged or appertaining to the security given, and shall there- 
upon be allowed as a credit the withdrawal value of the shares pledged 
as security, together with such other credits as may be returnable on 
account thereof, and the balance shall be received by the association 
in full settlement and discharge of such loan or advance; provided, 
that all settlements made in periods intervening between stated monthly 
meetings of the directors shall be made as of the date of the stated 
monthly meeting next succeeding such settlement; provided, also, that 
any member electing to repay his loan or advance may, in lieu of re- 
paying the same in full, elect to repay the same in part in even hun- 
dreds of dollars in cash, or he may elect to have applied as a credit 
on the amount of such loan or advance the then withdrawal value of 
the shares upon which such loan or advance may then be predicated; 
and thereupon the said shares shall be and become cancelled in the 
proportion of one share for each one hundred dollars so applied as a 
credit, and the remaining uncancelled shares and the remaining credit 
shall be transferred to and held as advanced or oledged shares of the 
then current series or date, and the obligation evidencing such loan 
or advance, and the mortgage or other security given to secure the 
same, shall not in any wise be prejudiced by any such transfer, whether 
such transfer shall have been provided for in the obligation evidencing 
such loan or advance and the mortgage securing the same or not; and 
after the application of every such credit the amount of such loan or 
advance shall forthwith be and become reduced in accordance with the 
amount so applied as a credit, and such advanced shareholder shall not 
thereafter be held liable for any greater amount than shall be remain- 
ing due after the application of such credits, except for arrearages and 
penalties occasioned by the shareholder's own default. 



304 CORPORATIONS. 



§ 16. Deceased members.] Upon the death of a shareholder, 
his legal representatives shall be entitled to receive the voluntary with- 
drawal value of the unpledged shares of the deceased. No fines shall 
be charged or profits credited to a deceased member's shares from and 
after his decease, unless his legal representatives assume the future 
payments on such shares. 

§ 17. Membership fees — dues — penalty.] A membership fee 
and a transfer fee, neither of which shall exceed 25 cents per share, 
may be charged, and all fees shall be accounted for as a part of the 
receipts of the association. Any association may impose a penalty for 
the non-payment of dues, interest or premium at the time they shall 
fall due, which penalties shall in no case exceed the sum of 10 cents 
per share per month, and it shall not be permissible to either compound 
or cumulate such penalties. 

§ 18. Who may become subscribers.] Married women may 
become subscribers to the capital stock of such association and hold, 
control and transfer their stock in all respects as femmes sole, and their 
stock shall not be subject to the control of or liable for the debts of 
their husbands. Minors may become subscribers to and owners of the 
stock of such association, which may be withdrawn in like manner as 
other stock, and the receipt of such minors shall be a valid acquittance. 

Joint ownership.] Shares may be issued in the names of two 
persons and the survivor; and in the event of the death of either, the 
association shall be liable thereon only to the survivor, and while both 
are living payment to either shall discharge the liability to both. The 
joint ownership of shares shall not confer the right to vote to a greater 
extent than if said shares were held by an individual. 

§ 19. Loans.] The board of directors shall hold such stated 
meetings not less frequently than once a month, as may be provided 
by the by-laws. At which meeting the money in the treasury shall be 
offered for loan in open meeting, and the shareholders who shall bid 
the highest premium for the preference or priority of loan, shall be 
entitled to receive a loan of one hundred dollars ($100.00) for each 
share of stock held by said shareholders; the said premium bid may 
be deducted from the loan in one amount, or may be paid in such 
proportionate amounts or installments, and at such times during the 
existence of the shares of stock borrowed upon, as may be designated 
by the by-laws of the respective associations; provided, that any such 
association may, by its by-laws, dispense with the offering of its money 
for bids in open meeting, and in lieu thereof loan. its money at a rate 
of interest, or interest and premium, to be fixed by the directors, de- 
ciding the preference or priority of the right to a loan by the priority 
of the approved applications therefor of its shareholders; and pro- 
vided, that no loan shall be made by said association except to its own 
members, nor in any sum in excess of the amount of shares held by 
such members borrowing, but such shareholders may borrow such frac- 
tional part of one hundred dollars ($100.00) as the by-laws may pro- 
vide. Good and ample real estate security unencumbered, except by 
prior loans of such association, shall be given by the borrower to secure 
the payment of the loan; provided, that the board of directors shall 



CORPORATIONS. 305 



require an examination of title and written opinion thereof; and may, in 
its discretion, require that such real estate security shall be accompanied 
by an abstract of the title of the property in question, or a guaranteed 
title thereof, or a certificate under the Torrens system-; provided, how- 
ever, that the shares of such associations may be received as security, 
to the amount of the withdrawal value of such shares; and, provided, 
that the board of directors may by a two-thirds vote of all its mem- 
bers temporarily invest the funds of the association in the treasury in 
excess of the demands of the shareholders in other loans and securities, 
but such investments shall not exceed twenty per centum of the assets 
of the association. No mortgage given to secure a loan from any mutual 
building, loan or homestead association shall be taken in the name of 
a trustee. 

Whenever an insurance company shall, under the terms of its 
policy, pay to an association organized under this law, any sum for 
loss or damage by fire or wind storm to property mortgaged to such 
association, and shall claim that as to the owner of the premises in- 
sured no liability existed, said insurance company shall to the extent 
of such payment be legally subrogated to all the rights of the associa- 
tion receiving the same, or if such insurance company shall pay to 
such association the net amount due upon the indebtedness secured 
by such mortgage after deducting all proper credits, said association 
may thereupon assign and transfer to such insurance company its mort- 
gage and the obligation or note secured thereby, and thereupon such 
insurance company shall be subrogated to the rights of said association. 

§ 20. Life insurance.] The board of directors may require as 
additional security for any loan, insurance on the life of the borrower 
or other person in an amount and in some company to be designated 
by them, or the borrower may do so voluntarily with the consent of 
the association. The policy of insurance shall be assigned to the associa- 
tion as collateral security for the loan, and in case of death shall be ap- 
plied to its payment. The costs of such insurance may be paid by the 
association from time to time when due, and deducted from the amount 
standing to the credit of the borrower on his stock, or from his sub- 
sequent payments, the same as other assessments. Other arrangements 
may be made for the payment of such insurance by the consent of all 
parties. 

§ 21. Failure to give security for loan.] In case the bor- 
rower shall neglect to offer security, or shall offer security, that is not 
approved by the board of directors, by such time as the by-laws may 
prescribe, he or she may be charged with one month's interest, together 
with any expenses incurred, and the money may be resold at the next 
stated meeting. In case of nonpayment of installments or interest and 
fines by borrowing stockholders for the space of six months, payment 
of principal and interest and fines without deducting the premium paid 
or the interest thereon, may be enforced by proceedings against their 
securities according to law, upon the order of the board of directors. 

§ 22. Payment of loan — when premium refunded.] In the 
event of the repayment of a loan before the expiration of the eighth 

—20 L 



306 CORPORATIONS. 



year after the date of issue of the stock in such association on which 
the loan may have been made, when the premium has been deducted in 
advance, there shall be refunded to the borrower one eighth of the 
premium paid for every year of the said eight years then unexpired. 

§ 23. PREMIUMS, EINES, ETC., NOT USURIOUS — STOCK AND NOTES 

not to be taxed.] Corporations organized under this Act being of 
the nature of co-operative associations, therefore no interest, premiums, 
fines, nor interest on such premiums that may accrue to said corpora- 
tion, according to the provisions of this Act, shall be deemed usurious 
and the same may be collected as other debts of like amount may be col- 
lected by laws in this State, and all money paid to such corporation 
being at once loaned out and placed into taxable property, and the 
shares of stock and notes provided for in this Act being simply evidence 
as to where such money has been placed, therefore such stock and notes 
shall not be subject to taxation. 

§ 24. May purchase, etc., real estate — when.] Any mutual 
building, loan or homestead association, incorporated by and under 
this Act, is hereby arthorized and empowered to purchase at any sheriff's 
or other judicial sale, or at any other sale, public or private, any real 
estate upon which such association may have or hold any mortgage, lien 
or other encumbrance, or in which said association may have an interest, 
and the real estate so purchased, to sell, convey, lease, mortgage or ex- 
change for other real estate and to dispose of such real estate so ac- 
quired at pleasure to any person or persons whomsoever. 

Any such association shall have power to acquire and hold real 
estate whereon there is or may be erected a building or buildings suit- 
able for the convenient transaction of its business, from portions of 
which, not required for its own use, a revenue may be derived; pro- 
vided that the amount so invested shall not exceed five (5) per centum 
of its assets. 

§ 25. Consolidation of associations.] Any two or more as- 
sociations of this State may consolidate into a single corporation by a

or consolidation at a price equal to the fair value of such share or 
shares with interest on such fair value at the rate of five per cent per 
annum from the date such sale, lease, merger, or consolidation was 
consummated. If such fair value and interest thereon is not paid to 
such objecting stockholder by such acquiring corporation within thirty 
days after such sale, lease, merger or consolidation is consummated, 
then such objecting stockholder may, within sixty days after the con- 
summation of such sale, lease, merger or consolidation, file a petition in

tion the practice and procedure thereon shall be the same, so far as 
practicable, as that under the eminent domain laws of this State, but 
the court shall have full power and authority to do all things and enter 
all such orders as it may deem equitable and just for the purpose of 
preserving and protecting the rights of the parties to the proceeding 
during the pendency thereof. Such fair values shall be ascertained 
and determined as of the date of the consummation of such sale, lease, 
merger or consolidation, and without regard to any depreciation or 
appreciation because of or on account of such sale, lease, merger or 
consolidation. 

The court shall enter judgment against such acquiring corpora- 
tion for the amount of such fair value and interest thereon, which 
judgment may be collected as other judgments at law. Upon the 
payment of such judgment such stockholder shall cease to have any 
interest in such stock or in the property of the corporation. Such 
stock may be held and disposed of by the corporation as it shall see fit. 

Unless such objecting stockholder shall file such petition within 
the time herein limited, such stockholder and those claiming under him 
shall be conclusively presumed to have authorized, approved and rati- 
fied such sale, lease, merger or consolidation. If at the expiration of 
thirty days from the time of the consummation of such sale, lease, 
merger or consolidation, the person in whose name such share or shares 
shall stand, shall not be living, or shall be under disability, his executor, 
administrator, guardian, or conservator, as the case may be, shall be 
entitled to file such petition within ninety days after the consummation 
of such sale, lease, merger or consolidation.

the same fees that a domestic corporation must pay upon an increase 
in capital stock equal to the amount of such excess.

shares, for the purpose of estimating the amount of fees and taxes to 
be paid hereunder, shall be considered to be of the par value of one

340 COKPOEATIONS 



identical with the calendar year, it shall make such report for the fiscal 
year next preceding February first of the year in which such report is 
made. Such report shall give the address of the corporation, officers 
and directors in this State by street and number. Such annual report 
shall also disclose such facts as necessary to enable the Secretary of 
State to ascertain the proportion of its capital stock represented by 
business transacted and tangible property located in this State and such 
other information as may be necessary or appropriate in order to assess 
the annual license fee or franchise tax. Such report shall be verified 
by the oath of the president, vice-president, secretary or assistant secre-

of each year a list of corporations making an annual report, and shall 
furnish a copy thereof to each recorder of deeds.

surance companies, heretofore or hereafter organized under the laws 
of this State or admitted to do business in this State, and required 
by this Act to make an annual report, shall pay an annual license fee 
or franchise tax to the Secretary of State of five cents on each one 
hundred dollars of the proportion of its authorized capital stock repre- 
sented by business transacted and property located in this State, but 
in no event shall the amount of such license fee or franchise tax be 
less than ten dollars for any year. 

§ 106. In ascertaining the amount of the authorized capital stock 
represented by business transacted and property located in this State, 
the sum of the business of any foreign or domestic corporation trans- 
acted in this State and the total tangible property of such corporation 
located within this State shall be divided by the sum of the total busi- 
ness of the corporation, and the total tangible property of the corpora- 
tion wherever situated. 

The license fee or franchise tax required to be paid by telegraph, 
telephone, cable, railroad and pipe line companies shall be computed by 
averaging the per cent obtained, as required above, with the per cent 



CORPORATIONS. 341 



obtained by dividing the length of such line of telegraph, telephone, 
cable, railroad or pipe line companies actually located in this State by 
the total length of line of such telegraph, telephone, cable, railroad and 
pipe line company. 

.§ 107. In case it appears from the annual report that the corpora- 
tion has no tangible property located in this State, and is transacting

the Secretary of State as an annual franchise tax: All such corpora- 
tions having a capital stock of $50,000 or less shall pay an annual fee 
of $10; corporations having a capital stock of more than $50,000 but

more than $500,000 but not exceeding $1,000,000 shall pay a fee of $50 ; 
corporations having a capital stock of more than $1,000,000 but not 
exceeding $10,000,000 shall pay a fee of $200; and all corporations 
having a capital stock in excess of $10,000,000 shall pay an annual fee 
of $1,000. 

In the event that the corporation has stock of no par value, its 
shares, for the purpose of fixing such fee, shall be considered to be of 
the par value of $100 per share. 

§ 108. The franchise tax herein provided to be paid shall be due 
and payable on the first day of July of each year and shall be the 
franchise tax for the year commencing on the first day of July in 
which it is due and ending on the thirtieth day of June next thereafter.

the year next ensuing, commencing on July first, and the amount, if 
any, found by the Secretary of State from the annual report to be due 
upon an increase of capital stock of a foreign corporation represented 
in this State, and that objections, if any, to such assessment will be 
heard by the officer making such assessment, on a day stated therein,

342 CORPORATIONS. 



quired by this section shall be mailed to the corporation addressed to 
its post office address as shown by the records in the office of the Sec- 
retary of State. A failure to receive the notice mentioned in this sec- 
tion shall not relieve a corporation of the obligation to pay the annual 
franchise taxes nor shall it invalidate the assessment of the tax. 

§ 113. It shall be the duty of the officer making the assessment 
to collect the same. 

§ 114. If the franchise tax assessed in accordance with the pro- 
visions of this Act shall not be paid on or before the thirty-first day

a penalty of five per cent for each month or part of month that the 
same is delinquent, commencing with the month of August. 

§ 115. The franchise taxes assessed under this Act, together with 
penalties, interest and cost that shall accrue thereon, shall be a prior 
and first lien on the real and personal property of the corporation from 
and including the first day of July of the year when such franchise 
taxes should have been paid until the same have been paid. 

The Secretary of State shall make and keep in his office a record 
showing the name of each corporation against which a franchise tax 
has been assessed, the amount assessed against each corporation, to- 
gether with penalties and costs, if any, and the date when paid, and a 
notation of any and all proceedings taken for the collection of the 
franchise tax. 

§ 116. In case any corporation shall fail, refuse or neglect to pay 
the franchise tax assessed against it on or before the thirty-first day 
of July, the Secretary of State shall issue a warrant, under his hand 
and official seal, directed to the sheriff of any county in the State, com- 
manding him to collect and return such franchise tax and penalties. 
It shall be the duty of the sheriff receiving such warrant to levy upon 
and sell the personal property of such corporation to satisfy such fran- 
chise tax and penalties, together with the legal costs and charges of 
such sheriff. Upon the receipt of such warrant the sheriff shall pro- 
ceed upon the same in all respects, with like effect, and in the same 
manner' as prescribed by law in respect to executions issued against 
property upon judgments of courts of record, and shall be entitled 
to the same fees for the execution of the warrant, to be collected in the 
same manner. 

§ 117. The Secretary of State, through the Attorney General, 
may, at any time on or after the first day of August of the year in 
which the franchise tax is due and payable, institute an action of

of competent jurisdiction, for the recovery of the amount of such taxes 
and penalties due and prosecute the same to final judgment. 

§ 118. In case any corporation, required herein to pay a franchise

assessed against it on or before the thirty-first day of July of the year in 
which such franchise tax becomes due and payable, the Attorney Gen- 
eral shall file an information in equity against such corporation, either 
in the Circuit Court of Sangamon County or in the Circuit Court of 



CORPORATIONS. 343 



such other county in the State as to the Attorney General may seem 
best for the dissolution of a domestic corporation for abandonment and 
non-user of its charter. 

§ 119. Upon the filing of such information in equity summons 
shall issue, directed to the sheriff of the county in which the principal 
office in this State, as shown by the records in the office of the Secre- 
tary of State is located, which summons shall be served by delivering 
a copy thereof to the president of such corporation, if he can be found 
in such county, and, if he cannot be found therein, then by leaving 
such copy with the clerk, secretary, superintendent, or other agent of 
such corporation. 

§ 120. In case the sheriff shall make return thereon that such 
president, clerk, secretary, superintendent or other agent of such cor- 
poration cannot be found in his county, then the Attorney General 
shall cause publication to be made in some newspaper printed in the 
county where the principal office in this State of such corporation is 
located (as shown by the records in the office of the Secretary of 
State), containing a notice of the pendency of such suit, the names 
of the parties thereto, the title of the court and the time and place 
of the return of the summons. The Attorney General shall incorporate 
in one publication and notice the names of all corporations against 
which information in equity are filed to the same term of court. The 
Attorney General shall also, within ten days of the first publication 
of such notice, send a copv thereof by mail, addressed to the corpora- 
tion at its principal office in this State, as shown by the records in the 
office of the Secretary of State, and his certificate to that effect shall 
be evidence. 

§ 121. The notice herein required may begin at any time after 
the return of the sheriff is filed, and shall be published at least once 
each week for three successive weeks and no default shall be taken 
against any defendant not served with summons, and not appearing, 
until thirty days shall have intervened between the date of the first 
publication and the first day of the term of court at which such default 
or proceeding is proposed to be taken. 

§ 122. The practice shall be the same as in cases in chancery, 
except that the Attorney General shall not be required to file a copy 
of his pleadings. Suits instituted hereunder shall be placed on a sep- 
arate docket and shall stand for hearing upon the call of such docket 
at such times during any term of such court as the judge thereof shall 
order. 

§ 123. In case the court shall decree a dissolution of such corpora- 
tion, or shall enjoin a foreign corporation from further transacting 
business in this State, the clerk shall certify such fact to the Secretary 
of State. Upon the filing of such certificate such dissolution shall be 
complete. 

§ 124. The cost of the publication necessary to procure service of 
notice on a corporation shall, unless the decree is against the defendant 
and unless such cost can be collected of the defendant, be paid by 
the State. Such costs of publication shall be as follows and shall

constitute full payment for three publications and the certificate of the 
publisher that such publication was made: 

Twenty-five cents for each corporation named in the notice, and, 
in addition thereto, ten dollars. 

No other costs or charges shall be allowed or paid for any other 
service performed with relation to such information in equity. 

§ 125. The filing of such report, and the payment of such fran- 
chise tax and penalties and legal costs of suit, during the pendency of 
such information in equity, shall abate such suit. 

§ 126. On the fifteenth day of September of each year, the Secre- 
tary of State shall certify to the Attorney General the names of all 
corporations that have neglected to pay the franchise taxes or have 
neglected to file the annual report in accordance with the provisions of 
this Act, together with all facts in relation thereto and it is hereby 
made the duty of the Attorney General at the earliest practicable mo- 
ment, in the name of the People of the State of Illinois to institute 
proceedings for the dissolution of such corporation for failure to pay 
such fees, or for the abandonment and non-user of charter. The cer- 
tificate from the Secretary of State to the Attorney General shall be 
taken and received in all courts and places as prima facie evidence of 
the facts therein stated. At any time prior to the institution of suit 
and upon filing an affidavit that the corporation has been continuously 
in active business and filing of a report in the form of an annual re- 
port, required by this Act, and upon the payment of all fees, taxes and 
penalties due, the Secretary of State shall certify to the Attorney 
General of the filing of the report and the pa^rment of the fees, taxes 
and penalties due.

other evidences of indebtedness upon which fees are required by law

and about the incorporation of any company until the initial and other

September thirtieth of the same year a franchise tax equal to the full

principal office is located, the following papers : 

(1) The certificate of organization; 

(2) The certificate of any amendment of its charter; 

(3) The certificate of merger or consolidation; 

(4) The certificate of dissolution; 

(5) The certificate of authority of a foreign corporation to trans- 
act business in this State. 

Such instruments shall be filed within ten days after the issuance

§ 132. The Secretary of State shall possess and have all necessary 
powers, and shall perform all the duties which may be required to 
properly and efficiently enforce and administer the requirements and 
provisions of this Act. He may propound such interrogatories to any 
corporation, domestic or foreign, which he may deem necessary and 
proper, for the purpose of ascertaining whether or not such corpora- 
tion has complied with all the provisions of this Act. 

Such interrogatories, if directed to an applicant, shall be answered

may deem appropriate. 

§ 133. Failure, neglect or refusal to answer interrogatories pro- 
pounded by the Secretary of State within the time specified in such 
interrogatories, or within extensions thereof authorized by the Secre- 
tary of State, shall in the case of domestic corporations, constitute 
grounds of forfeiture of charter, and in the case of foreign corpora- 
tions, authorize the Secretary of State to revoke the authority of such 
foreign corporation to transact business in this State. 

§ 134. All facts and information obtained by such interrogatories,
